adoption. I don't quite want to maintain yet another package, but I do use
dlocate a _lot_, so I'd give others time to step up and take it, but it
would not be removed on my watch.
So, dlocate is not going anywhere. If Craig wants us to wait a few months,
since there is nothing completely broken in dlocate, I suggest we do just
